Awwww, that sucks Urch. I use grapefruit seed extract if I ever get bronchitis or infection. Put it in some juice (only a couple ounces) 3 or 4 times a day. Clears up strep too. I just made some ear drops with it because I have had a really painful left ear. Feels better today. I hope you feel better soon!
Klein - Usually I get the candy and DH doesn't even know I have bought any til it shows up on whatever holiday. Unfortunately this year I can't shop so he has bought and eaten and rebought a LOT so far. He has had me hid some and then threatens if I don't tell where it is..
I think you picked a great way to memorialize your husband with DD. And I'm not surprised your current DH was willing to do whatever you wanted after you ok'd Nole.
Marie - Congrats! It definitely sounded like it could be twins with those betas. Do you know if the sacs measured the same? With ours the two that took were the same and the one that we lost was smaller so we kind of knew who we could expect to stick around. Hope both are sticky little beans for you
It is so strange how each clinic is different about releasing to OB/midwife. Mine keeps through 12 weeks.
Teta - I haven't really had cramping but I do get twinges from time to time and get groin pain now and then.
Care - congrats on finishing the progesterone! I understand being nervous but at 12 weeks you should definitely be ok to stop.
Sarah - I had awful dry mouth the past few weeks but it seems less bad this week than it has been. I read online that it can be common and isn't always a sign of gestational diabetes - so hopefully we can both avoid that.
Urch - sorry for the infection It's awful when we can't take much of anything. On the good side though we are both 1/3 of the way there!
First OB appointment went well yesterday. Took over 3 hours though by the time we met with the OB nurse, did bloodwork, met with the Dr and then went to ultrasound.
Didn't get a real ultrasound since I had one with the RE last week, they did check cervical length though. I was glad they did that since I am concerned about cervical competence due to a procedure I had about 10 years ago - and even moreso since it is twins. It checked out fine for now. They are going to check it each appointment.
I go every 4 weeks for right now and they will do an ultrasound and cervical check each time. So we will end up having lots of ultrasounds pictures by the end.
DH went since I wanted him to meet the new Dr and know where the office was. He was bored of course so I sent him to the hospital cafeteria. He was very pleased that the food was the same as in February since it is the same hospital company as the one I was admitted to.
Ended up not doing any screening tests. Once I told the OB nurse and Dr that we wouldn't do amnio they said it was a waste of time since all it really did was make them advise to do amnio. Was glad there wasn't a lot of pressure to do them.
My OB is out of the office for my next appt so I will be seeing the perinatologist. I'm kind of glad to go ahead and see him now so he knows my case already in case there are problems later.
Hi everyone. Finally, something's happening with me. Today I had my first ultrasound at 6w3d. It was so sweet because the nurse practitioner was the one I worked with last fall during my iuis. She's always been wonderful and was smiling ear to ear today. Everything looks good - she said "perfect". We saw a heartbeat and the creature is measuring 6w4d. Yay!!!! So glad we transferred two embryos, I would have been so miserable if we'd done one and it didn't stick.
Sarah - glad you're starting to look pg...so exciting!
Mrs. Bear - happy everything is going well! I'm not too sure about the sizes of the sacs & he said it was too early to measure. I thought one looked slightly larger than the other (maybe 25%) so not sure what it means. If i hear 2hbs & see 2fps on thursday, that should tell me they're both developing. How much smaller was your 3rd that didn't make it?
